District 1 DeKalb County Commissioner Nancy Jester on Tuesday called for interim county CEO Lee May to resign from his position in the face of corruption allegations. Jester called for the resignation during a press conference, during which she said, “Corruption and ineffective management in DeKalb County can no longer be thought of as a rare instance. The reality is DeKalb County faces a crisis with the possibility of simultaneously wiping out our financial reserves and killing future jobs and economic development for decades to come. There is one way by which this crisis can be resolved. That act is for Lee May to resign as DeKalb Interim CEO.”
Jester joins State Senator Emanuel Jones as elected officials who have called for May’s resignation in recent weeks. Former U.S. Representative Bob Barr also released a statement calling for further investigation into the corruption allegations made in former state Attorney General Mike Bowers’ extensive report.
